Replacing a Supreme Court Justice
Many Believers are unaware of the process by which a Supreme Court Justice is replaced. A President gets to appoint an individual, usually a judge in another federal court, for an open seat on the Supreme Court. A Senate committee then meets with this individual to ask them questions regarding their fitness for this position. If they like what they hear, they refer them to a confirmation vote of the entire Senate. The Senate’s approval means they are appointed as a Justice for the rest of their lives. This is a very important decision!
“Show me a righteous ruler and I will show you a happy people. Show me a wicked ruler and I will show you a miserable people.” (Proverbs 29:2; GNT)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- Pray that the individual Neil Gorsuch is will be fully revealed through the Senate confirmation process.
- Ask God to provide direction to the nation’s leadership in this matter.
- Pray that the Senate Confirmation Committee will have wisdom from above in their investigation process.
A prayer you can pray:
Father, the appointment of a Supreme Court Justice who will sit on the court for the rest of their lives is a very serious matter, indeed. We are asking You to be the One in control of this process, Lord. We say that the placement is the Lord’s. You know the impact better than we do of any appointment that’s made. Give the Senate great wisdom in their questioning to reveal the true motive of those appointed, so that the people of this nation do not suffer under unrighteous judgement. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
This battle for the Supreme Court of the United States is the Lord’s and the Court belongs to no man!
